I’m that kind of girl that always brings food to parties and just loves to surprise friends, family or co-workers with homemade, vegan treats. But sometimes I don’t have a lot of time and need recipes that go really, really quick and are easy to make. Muffins are in those cases one of best choices, because they bake much faster than cakes. And Chocolate Chunk Muffins are a classic – everyone loves these.

They are really easy and quick to make. While the oven preheats, simply whisk the dry and wet ingredients in one bowl (one-bowl-recipe!), pour them in the muffin tins (an ice cream scooper makes this super easy) and then bake them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Easy as that.

If you want fruitier versions, you can sub the chocolate chunks with fruits like blueberries or raspberries, so this muffin recipe is very versatile. It’s the perfect base recipe for all your muffin adventures! :)

So yummy! My toddler kept asking for these and ate at least tree! He usually just picks chocolate chips out of everything, so it's definitely a success

oh wow! I am really happy to hear that!

I have made these muffins today and they’re a huge success! My partner told me “mmm babe, these are SO GOOD, I love them!”. Lately I have been relying on the same cake and cookies, baking one and the other without changing at all. I wanted some change today and I’m glad I found your recipe. They made their way onto the baked goods at home :) Thank you!

PS: I like illustrating recipes that I like using, can I do it with yours?

hehe, I am so glad you made your partner happy with these muffins :) Of course you can illustrate them, I would love to see it when you do! <3

Delicious and so easy!

The good news? They ARE quick to mix and pop into the oven. The bad news? The recipe as given really only makes 7 smallish muffins. Seriously? You would take 7 muffins to a party? Please modify the recipe to produce at least a dozen, or else these are a waste of time and oven heat to make.

Why does the creator have to modify it for you... just double the recipe


Wednesday 29th of January 2020

I went ahead and filled 6 instead of the possible 7. I was disappointed it didn’t make a dozen and that the yield is not published.
